Homeownership Month in Hawaii Is Too Important To Cancel

Although 2020 has brought everyone more than their share of challenges, there are still plenty of reasons to celebrate Homeownership Month in Hawaii this June. It doesn’t matter if you’re ready to buy today, or still in the planning stages of buying your first home – at Compass Home Loans, it’s business as usual.

Shelter in your own place

If your experience with “sheltering in place” in a rental home has convinced you to fast-track your buying plans, you’re not alone1. Builders and real estate agents alike have been reporting a rise in interested buyers during the last months.

In addition to safer social distancing, homeownership offers amenities that more of today’s buyers are demanding. The most popular ones include dedicated home offices, private open spaces for relaxing outdoors, a laundry room, and kitchens equipped with more than rental-quality basics.

Say hello to happy

Homeownership offers more than safe shelter… you can also look to a secure financial future. While homeownership is a major responsibility, it can also provide equally major rewards. From the day you move in, you’ll be building equity – the amount of your mortgage you’ve repaid, plus any rise in your home’s value – each month.

There’s even more good news. When you buy a home, you’ll be able to put down roots in a neighborhood of your choice and feel part of a community. And the dream of homeownership really is a dream come true. A 2019 poll2 found 93% of homeowners say having a house makes them happier than renting ever did.

Check out your financing options

Compass Home Loans offers a wide variety of mortgage programs to make it easier for you to choose a home loan that complements your budget and your financial goals. We also offer low down payment home loans, and if you’re a military veteran, a reservist, or still in active duty, you may qualify for a VA loan with no down payment requirement3

If you don’t have funds for a down payment, you may qualify for down payment assistance from your state, county, or city. Some even offer grant assistance, which means you will never be required to repay these funds4.

When you’re ready to apply for your loan, you have several options. You can apply online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from the convenience of your home through our online portal or digital app on your iPhone or Android phone.

No matter how our relationship begins, you’ll appreciate how we leave out the mortgage-speak acronyms and explain everything to you in everyday language. We do this by taking a different, customer-centric approach to lending. But don’t take our word for it, over 890 homebuyers have given Compass Home Loans an average 4.95/5 rating with Social Survey for their home financing experience.
